BODYPUMP® 74 - CONTROVERSY OR NOT!


On the original Les Mills forum they have been debating this for a long time. The use of two songs "3" and "Don't Speak" are the tracks concerned. 

I personally have has no issues with the use of these songs. As where I am from we have two versions of the song to choose from one is the original and the other is the PPCA Free version of Bodypump 49. The thing is the tracks appeal is not to any older adult out there. The tracks appeal to a generation from 16 - 24 who are the target audience of the tracks concerned.. I am not personally offended by the tracks. They are purely pop songs that fit a time period where people are listening to a certain genre of music and a certain time where this type of music is out there. I take it as that. It is a song in the charts and in 5-years from now people will be onto Bodypump 80 or there abouts. 

There are however some people that are offended. They now have been given a clean version of the track to play in class. I must say that I think there are bigger issues to worry about than "3" by Britney or "Don't Speak" they are pop songs.

If anyone cares to comment please leave me comment?

The only thing that bothers me about this mix is that I think that Dont Speak is too slow for a back track and reeeeally make me bored.... :)

Cheers from Brazil.

I think the break in the sets throws people off. The track we have the PPCA version sounds different for some strange reason. It is more hard core than the one in the original Bodypump 74. Overall a great release. Now my fav of all time.

Cheers!

Funny....I didn't like Don't Speak at first but then as it played in class, it became a lot of fun because I would say what the title of the song was and challenged them, the class, to see if they knew the choreography because I wouldn't be telling them!! Huge excitement would build as we were quiet and focusing on our form and staying together as a team! I haven't taught that track in a couple of weeks, and I already miss it!!

I love this release.I find that "Don't Speak" is a great track. It does not get better than track 4 of Bodypump 74.

It is an awesome release. We have had the track for almost 4 months now.

Our class is looking forward to Bodypump 75.
